hahahahahahahahahaha, sorry. I am using the most busted up old cheap lousy tripod ever. I keep one of the legs secure with duct tape cause it fell like 13 stories in richmond virginia when I was coming down a fire escape. It is terrible.

Mate,your shots are sensational.What aperture and how long did you have it open for?Last question,did the extreme sports guy on the edge of the roof jump?If so,did you capture it on your camera?

Apertures ranged from 8-22 and the exposure coincidentally range from 8s to 30s heheh.

Oh, he was just looking, but he does look like a base jumper, he has talked about it for awhile now actually. He has other plans that I hope to photograph in epic ways.

That last shot should be better, but I upscaled a smaller version of it that had a better color balance and killed the clarity.

If he does it,just make sure your there to capture all the action!!!!!I also must say,standing that close to the edge without a chute,man he's definately got some big Kahuna's to do that!!

Those are fantastic shots. I especially liked #6. Not sure what it is, but the composition is awesome.

Yeah, we were up on the ledge of the aqua in chicago with winds gusting to 35 mph. Had to climb up an elevator mast to get on the roof and some other crafty stuff.
